The overall goal of the Thematic Network on Climate Justice is to i) facilitate and enhance interdisciplinary research on climate justice and ii) establish a programme of educational exchanges on climate justice (including, for instance, GCU’s MSc Climate Justice). Sub-themes of the Thematic Network are: just transitions, climate security (migration, conflict, human trafficking), and the mental health impacts of climate change.
The goals of the thematic network include:
- Establishing research partnerships and collaborations on issues such as just transitions, climate security (migration, conflict, human trafficking) and the mental health impacts of climate change with a focus on the indigenous and vulnerable Arctic communities.
- Disseminating research findings and outreach on climate justice and climate change in the Arctic and what this means in terms of human rights & development.
- Promoting educational exchanges on climate justice and the impacts of climate change in the Arctic.
